This month we are continuing on the tight shoulder theme with the HBB stretch. HBB or “Hand Behind Back” stretch is great for any patient suffering from frozen shoulder or just tight IR from a prior injury. As seen in the illustration, the patient simple uses a Stretch strap, towel, or old belt to grab and gently pull up towards the sky with the non-injured shoulder. This action gently pulls the affected shoulder into IR as it slides up the patients back. Remember the involved shoulder should be relaxed and “just along for the ride”. A typical session is 10x10sec each stretch. This should be performed twice daily for really tight shoulders.
